Communication with humans is a multi-faceted phenomenon where the emotions, personality and nonverbal behaviours, as well as the verbal behaviours, play a signi ficant role, and Human-Robot Interaction (HRI) technologies should respect this complexity to achieve efficient and seamless communication. In this paper we describe the design and execution of five public demonstrations made with two HRI systems that aimed at automatically sensing and analysing human participants' nonverbal behaviour and predicting their facial action units, facial expressions and personality in real time while they interacted with a small humanoid robot. We describe an overview of the challenges faced together with the lessons learned from those demonstrations in order to better inform the science and engineering fi elds to design and build better robots with more purposeful interaction capabilities.
